I recently came across a few long-standing blogs that never crossed my path during my Google searches, and I was thinking that a Classroom 2.0 discussion about blog-sharing might be helpful, since we are members of "the social network for educators using collaborative technologies".

If you have a blog you'd like to share, either your own, or one that you'd recommend, post a reply with a link to the blog, the author's name, the focus of the blog, and perhaps a few words about why you find it interesting or useful.

Update: Follow me on Twitter

Here are my blogs:

TechPsych
Interactive Multimedia Technology

I have another blog that I use to post my reflections about what I'm learning in my mid-life journey as a computer/tech student:
The World Is My Interactive Interface

(I changed the name of the blog to reflect my current topics.)

Update 6/15/10
It has been a very busy school year!  The exciting news is that one of my schools has a multi-touch SMARTTable, and every classroom has an interactive whiteboard.  The teachers worked very hard to ramp up their IWB skills and I'm amazed at how quickly this interactive technology was adopted.    Of course, interactive applications and websites are pretty awesome on a huge screen or display!    The best part is that this technology has opened up the minds of a good number of students with severe autism characteristics.

In April, I participated in a workshop at ACM's 2010 CHI conference. The topic of the workshop focused on the next generation of human-computer interaction and education.

I also joined the SparkOn group, "a social platform for people that are sparked (inspired) by creative and emergent technologies"

Nancy, I went to your blog and read about Shelfari. I love it. Thanks for the link.
Thanks for your post Lynn. Susan's blog Art on the Move caught my attention for my parent and teacher blog and I have quoted her examples already
www.parents.ourschool.ca If you find more blog examples of teachers connecting to parents please let me know.
Also www.Classrooblogging.com
This is a great idea! Thanks.

Here is my classroom blog: http://arditoscience.blogspot.com/
And here is my blog on education/web 2.0/teaching ownership:
http//teachingownership.blogspot.com
Here is my blog. It covers a wide variety of technology tips for teachers. Software, hardware, web20, productivity, etc... The more I think about it, I guess it's not so much a blog, but more a resource site hidden behind a tough Wordpress exterior :)
I guess my blog is sort of like an on-line interactive filing cabinet for my resources- and also for my brain!
Hello Scott

Just a note to say thank you. Your site had information that I need right this very minute - serendipitous! I bookmarked it in three places. I share the link with other teachers on my blog.

Show and Tell

Thanks again.

I highlighted your blog today in a post - I liked the PeaceBuilders Pledge website. It is good that your school is a PeaceBuilder school!
Thanks
Kevin
TellingTheStory has followed the past five years of interactive history and storytelling, technologies, standards (or lack thereof), needs, and hopes for the future.
I'll revisit your blog soon. Thanks for sharing.
